Arizona agency kills 7 javelinas in Tucson neighborhood

TUCSON, Ariz. — Federal wildlife officers have fatally shot seven
aggressive javelinas that have chased and attacked people in a Tucson
neighborhood.

Arizona Game and Fish Department officials said three subadult javelinas were
left unharmed because they weren’t involved in the attacks

According to the Arizona Daily Star, Game and Fish
spokesman Mark Hart said the department considered the euthanizing of the
javelinas on Tuesday night necessary because relocation isn’t a good option.

Hart said the javelinas are used to eating garbage and may not be able to find
food in the wild.

The attacks included one involving a woman who was injured while walking her dog
in the eastside Tucson neighborhood last week.
